India have set a huge target of 305 runs for South Africa in the 4th innings despite getting collapsed for just 174 runs in their 2nd innings. Rabada and Jansen were very impressive with the ball, picking 4 wickets respectively while Lungi Ngidi picked key wickets of Indian batters like KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara. South Africa at end of day posted 94/4 on board with the help of Dean Elgar’s crucial fifty-plus run knock while Bumrah was very impressive with the ball as usual. It will be interesting to see whether India can pull of a victory convincingly on Day 5 of this Test (or) will the weather play a spoilsport ultimately.
